retailers. christmas is it right around the corner. >> retailers use the season to take the numbers from the red to the black. this is their bread and butter. anything in the way could hurt them as a result hurt them and the jobs and economy. you can see what is happening with our twinkie and hostess and all . people who make them. they are out of the a job because of union workers who are demanding more. be lucky you have a job right now. >> wayne, if you look at thanksgiving to news years. and this is it super bowl for retailers for profits and unions know that and the timing is rough, don't you think? >> i don't see it that way. timing is off. you have merchandise in the tore right now. you caint sell it for the holiday season. what happens on black friday and going forward into the christmas season. all of that merchandise has to be here. you have to ordered that
8:32 am
months ago. these strikes are not hurting it hurts the walmart protest that could hurt shopping. port authority in oakland not necessarily behaved. they are one of the mot notorous unions. >> and at the same time certainly labor has a right to have their voice and issues whether it is health care or pay. >> they are choosing america's holiday season to get their message across and get their employers on the spot. you think that turns the sentiment against the unions. nit is not the best pr strategy. if i put my historian hat on here a bit. work is more hexploited in tough times. it is it the rise of the unions and the port problem as
8:33 am
it were. they were violating the california state laws. we are talking about the union and so far. this is it a problem. njohnathon wayne mentioned the port of oakland and six percent of all u.s. goods. that is the union's point to cause disruption and hurt the economy. and i tell you, they have every right to strike but the employers have the right to kick the ass to the curve. a job is a mutually agreeable trade. employers offering a job and if they don't like hit the brickings. >> do you think it is for the economy over all. we are in a fiscal cliff and rough waters here and now this to deal with?
8:34 am
>> i think it could be bad for the economy. they have the merchandise and this is not going to affect thanksgiving shopping season and christmas most likely. but look at history. 1948 we had five million workers on strike and it crippled the economy. the taft hartley act brought back the boom. that is it breaking of the unions and created the boom that eisenhower had. if these union heads go forward. this could hurt the economy. >> tracey, you made the point about the retailers, it could hurt the consumer spending as well the economy needs that right now. and economist looking to the holiday shopping season to get big numbers out. >> cheril, i am a last minute shopper and i disagree that they have everything in for the season. stuff comes in down to the
8:35 am
wire in so many small businesses if you don't have what i am looking for when i generally get out there, i am not buying it that hurts the over all economy. and look. at the unions what are you doing? people are dying for jobs and you are basic lie treating it like you throw it away. nand why the only place they are growing in the municipal. private sector learned from steel workers and airlines and education and pier point twinkies as well >> i am curious. what do you think. talk and it is it fine with just the accent. we are seeing a sea ship. >> two sides to every story and there has to be shared sacrifice. and as far as hostess. management didn't keep up with the times and taking huge bonus when their company was
8:36 am
bankrupt and there are two sides to every story and everybody is in it together. >> timing is it the problem. >> it is it a shared sacrifice between a employery and employee. it is it a shared trade. ther pushing wage levels up to unsustainable and leaves in hostess it can lose all jobs and can happen in the port. too. ngoods that are shipped through the crucial ports on the west coast. we are talking about the holiday season right now. if we still see the organized labor disruption continue in 2013? >> it could. that part is true going forward. with all due respect, tracey. yoining any merchant has not ordered all of his stuff and taken deliver i by that stuff now. if you wait until the last
8:37 am
minute to shop you are not getting it not because it was not shipped or in the store. that is it because someone else bought it it is it already there. if you have any since at all and we run some. we ordered all of that stuff and it is it all done you come back to the part about the unions. i am disappointed that we didn't discuss more about the twinkie situation . that mexican firm bimbo is going to buy it. >> and we are trying to discourage john than from eating on the show. >> he can weigh 130 pounds. let him eat all he wants. >> john, you get the last word on all of this. the next month is crucial for the retailers. big, big it is it their super bowl. >> we want to look at the average union worker who carries his lunch pail. he deserves the benefits. the problem is the unioned has.

8:45 am
replacement. we don't have the free market in health care and that's why we can't get it on our door step and obama care pushes us away from the free market. >> and shopping can be beneficial for consumers. their out of pocket costs can be high. and if they are going to save 10 grand they will do it. >> it is part process. and people do it for plastic surgery and things that are not covered, people are stingy with their own dollars. and that's what will make it. >> it goes down in price. >> if i have to dig in my pocket every time i need a procedure, i think twice of how much i pay. if i presume someone else is covering it i don't care. >> now we know how johnathon looks as good as he does. wayne, what do you make of this? >> you think we'll see it
8:46 am
continue not just with kroger. >> it is going on for sometime. people are flying to india tolet caribbean and various place us to get a procedure because it was done well and cheaper. and so it can happen here. we need a free market system with competition to prove that, that's all. >> it seems like that is one thing we do differently here than other countris and that is having more competition. tort reform not so much. but competition. >> i come from a count reap where the country is the government who are forcing all of the prices down. you need competition. fundmentally americans are paying too much and they are suffering. >> go out in new york and shop a knee replacement. you will find the bill all over the charts is no transparency in the hospital.
8:47 am
you force them to be transparent. >> still doctors out there to beef up want bill to cover other costs including malpractice insurance. which is why we need tort reform. >> and you are telling me aspirin doesn't cost ever upon you? buy a home in america you can get automatic citizenship. we debate and you decide.

signs that housing is turning around. another nation showing us how t. spain offering foreigners permanent citizenship. will this help america's housing market do you think? >> it should be residency and not citizenship. we had seven million immigrants coming to this country and buying homes and shopping in target and we have a hugely beneficial imact on the economy and attract the right kind of immigrants and want to work here and every immigrant has a right to come here. it is free to buy home as well. >> oh, my god. mexican drug lords with gobs of cash can buy and we give them citizenship. it is crazy. it is totally crazy it takes more than money to be citizen of the united states of america. it is it a privilege and not just something for people with
